fellow CBG players. Darren Brown of Nova Scotia is currently waiting a complete liver transplant and I was hoping to get some fellow DB CUSTOMS owners to show some support for this amazing builder and plan to put together a compilation of songs to help raise a little bit of money to relieve some of Darren's expenses.

The idea is an album full of songs played on DB CUSTOMS Cigar Box guitars by different owners from all over. If you own a DB customs build and would like to donate a track to the project, please email me your track at I want to get this set up soon, so please consider sending tracks before July 12.

also please  share this with anyone you may know that owns one of Darren's fine guitars. thanks for your help folks. Olds

THis album will be up on JULY 14....make sure you give it a listen and consider giving Darren a tip in the old tip jar...its gonna be a great, diverse, and amazingly mostly well-recorded cigarbox compilation.

Nice idea.  I am with James in what  he said about DB and his guitars.  And I don't have one either.  That lucky Wes!
